Yuma County's voters saw reality
I find it strange that the majority of voters in Yuma County voted for Mitt Romney.
While Yuma County is one of the most depressed and unemployed in the nation, they voted for hope and lost. While thousands are on food stamps, the farmers and some industries are having to go into central Mexico and bus people into this county to work.
I believe the voters in Yuma County had it right. Like many others who could read the handwriting on the wall, we see the riots in Europe that could happen right here in this country, because, like Europe, we're out of money.
Over the past four years, the president has bought enough votes to get him the presidency. Unfortunately, it's time to pay the bill and we're out of money.
The fiscal cliff that the economists talk about is closer than most would think. I believe the people in Yuma County are so close to this cliff that we've looked into the abyss and that's why we voted for Romney.
Having been to San Diego and Los Angeles, I see things going on like they're in a dream world. Anyone who has traveled to these cities sees the traffic and commerce like it's boom time once again. What they don't realize is that it's all being done on credit.
I commend the voters of Yuma County for being able to see the future. I also believe that when we do go over the cliff, the people of Yuma County will brush themselves off and go on with their lives.
